The easiest way is with a script lifted here:

if [[ $(id -u) -ne 0 ]] ; then echo "Please run as root" ; exit 1 ; fi
sync; echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
sync; echo 2 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
sync; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

Call the script drop-caches.

Mark it as executable using chmod a+x drop-caches

Call it using sudo ./drop-caches

If you place the script in /usr/local/bin you can call it using sudo drop-caches
